This example video shows how a typical umbrella can be modeled and analyzed kinematically in ASOMmini. The umbrella is opened automatically by a pressure spring, which is installed between the two movable sliders.
In this video the example of a typical umbrella is used to demonstrate how to purposefully create variations of a kinematic system in ASOM in order to find better solutions. For this purpose not only single elements but also groups of elements can be moved together, if necessary also restricted to only the X or […]
This example shows that the force conditions for a six-bar hinge mechanism on the flap of a kitchen cabinet (see last video) can also be checked quickly and easily with the kinematics software ASOMmini.
This example shows how the force conditions for a six-bar hinge mechanism on the flap of a kitchen wall unit can be checked quickly and easily with the kinematics software ASOM v7.
Use the new manual force element in ASOMmini (version 1.1 and higher) to see in real time how the necessary manual force to drive your system with its pre-defined motion profile develops while changes are made.
